Bernard, Maine, located on the southwestern part of Mount Desert Island, is often referred to as being on the “quiet” or “back” side of the island because it is on the opposite side from the well known and busier town of Bar Harbor. Bernard, and the local vicinity, has the rugged and easy-going manner of a Downeast fishing village. There is plenty of local character with lots of coastal photo opportunities. The harbor itself is shared by both Bass Harbor and Bernard and either place offers great views of the other. Each side offers its photo perspective advantages depending upon the time of day and lighting. Neither are actually separate towns but are both part of the municipality of Tremont. For Bernard lodging, dining, activity, and Acadia National Park regional information, please refer to the links at the top or bottom of this page.
